Each year, Potters Nursery transforms itself into Western Canada’s largest Christmas store, boasting more than 28,000 square feet devoted to all things yuletide. Starting every September, The Christmas Store at Potters is the destination to find tens of thousands of holiday-related items.
The buyers at Potters shop the world for The Christmas Store, including décor that’s tasteful yet unusual, as well as decorations you simply won’t find elsewhere. Their extensive line of ornaments (more than 50,000!) make for great personalized gifts and come in a wide variety of themes, including pets, travel, food, “Baby’s First Christmas,” and much more.
The Dark Room
An attraction not to be missed is the 3,000-square-foot “Dark Room,” illuminated by an incredible array of themed tree-light sets, including favourites like The Grinch, Star Wars, Peanuts, Christmas Vacation, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and even retro Bubble Lights.
Candy Land Sweet Tree
Potters’ “Sweet Tree” — an upside-down white tree with a three-foot scoop of “ice cream” at the top, complemented by ornaments in the shape of ice cream cones, donuts, cupcakes and more.
For the foodies, the Gourmet Food area offers thousands of products you won’t easily find elsewhere, including multiple flavours of popcorn, hot chocolate, jams and sauces (including irresistible ice cream sauces like Butter Tart Caramel). New specialty product lines include Cranberries Naturally from Fort Langley, farm-direct B.C. honey, and classic mince tarts from Scotland.
Gnomes & Elves
Be sure to leave enough time to check out the other impressive sections, including Petland, an area entirely devoted to spoiling your best friend with pet-themed stockings, cushions and tree ornaments; the Gnomes & Elves Room, with gnomes and elves is in every price range; ladies’ fashions; and trendy gifts for men.
